With Isaac Walker, planned route between us and took turns in leading legs. Consulted weather forecasts and avalanche forecast as part of planning.

Poor visibility from 850m+ requiring bearings to be taken, crampons used from Carn na Caim.

Strong winds encountered for the majority of the day with spin drift.

Ice axe carried but not used.

Area : Loch Rannoch to Newtonmore (Beinn Udlamain)

This area is listed in the SMC Munros Guide as ‘The Drumochter Hills) and covers the hills and mountains between Loch Rannoch and Newtonmore. Loch Ericht forms the western boundary and Glen Tromie the eastern boundary, with the Pass of Drumochter (the A9 and the Highland Main Line) dividing the area in two. Among the seven Munros in this area, only one is over 1000m (Beinn Udlamain is 1011m).
